Preparing Your Home for Sale

When you’ve decided to sell your home in Palm Springs, the last thing you want to do is spend money to spruce the place up. After all, whoever buys it is going to replace those outdated kitchen cabinets and grungy bathroom tiles anyway, right?

To get the best return on your investment — and avoid turning off potential buyers — you need to ensure your home looks its best when it hits the market. At the same time, you don’t want to waste effort or money on improvements that won’t pay off.

Cleaning and depersonalizing a house are two great ways to ensure your home is at it’s best, and will appeal to the maximum number of buyers. It only takes one to buy your home, and it only takes two to create a multiple offer situation – we can talk about multiple offer situation strategies in a future article!

In undertaking for sale preparation, strike a delicate balance between what to fix and what to leave alone, but in the end, make the right improvements that will result in a faster sale for top dollar. Ask your local Palm Springs Real Estate Agent for more advice.

How to see your house quickly

To sell your home quickly, you have to take an active role in the process. Don’t sit back and wait for the buyer who can see past potential flaws. Do your homework, make fixes, and go out of your way to show just how great your property is. Here are 5 tips to guide you through the process.

  1. Remove clutter: There is a beautiful world of freedom and fresh breath hiding behind that clutter. Deciding how to declutter your home is up to you.
  2. Light it up: Open all the curtains and blinds, turn on all the lights and look at each space through the eyes of a buyer.
  3. Hire local real estate agent: Like any employer who interviews potential candidates for positions within their company, a seller should interview local real estate agent(s). Don’t hire a Los Angeles agent when you are looking for Palm Springs Real Estate Agent. Don’t hire a Riverside Real Estate Agent when you are looking for San Diego Real Estate Agent.
  4. Stage the home: When you’re selling your home, you want it to look its absolute best for the potential buyers who walk through the door. 
  5. Hire professional photographer: Amazing real estate photos actually do have a major effect on your home sale, so don’t you think that blurry iPhone photos will cut it.
